"Civil Affairs: A Force for Consolidating Gains"
The Civil Affairs Association
In coordination with the
International Peace & Security Institute
Foreign Area Officer Association
Alliance for Peacebuilding
U.S. Global Leadership Coalition
Is pleased to announce the
2018 Civil Affairs Roundtable
Among the main findings at the 2017 Civil Affairs Symposium was that Civil Affairs is the strategic as well as operational force of choice for consolidating gains in a way that helps the larger interagency stabilization effort along with related Joint Force and Army missions across the full range of operations. CA can especially help fill critical civil-military integration gaps in stabilization and consolidation. But the Regiment must develop and articulate CA consolidation tasks in concepts and doctrine – and then be a ready force to execute them in ways that go beyond fieldcraft and fitness, schooling and individual qualifications, and so on.
Now that the Regiment has made its recommendations on CA force development for stabilization and consolidation, what is the policy response? In addition to the roll-out of 2017-18 Civil Affairs Issue Papers, institutional and influential leaders will review the findings and recommendations from the Symposium’s rich discussion, recorded in the Papers, in order to identify ways forward.
This year’s Civil Affairs Roundtable will be on Tuesday, April 17th at the National Guard Armory, 2001 East Capital St., SE, Washington, D.C. 20003. For the convenience of especially military personnel, the Roundtable takes place prior to the U.S. Army Peacekeeping & Stability Operations (PKSOI) Peace & Stability Operations Training & Education Workshop, April 18th-20th at the Army War College, Carlisle, PA.
